Once destined for life in the arcades, Burning Road brandishes its obvious influences with pride - and rightly so. It's American publisher Funsoft's first foray onto PlayStation, and what a debut. The 3 tracks are well thought out and rush by at an incredible rate, throwing pitfalls such as chicanes and rickety wooden causeways into your path. From out of nowhere comes a game every bit as exciting, every bit as nerve-rending as the big boys - the likes of WipEout and Ridge Racer. The cars are big and bold, each with unique speed and handling, and there's a choice of 4 in either automatic or manual transmission. Hot action at a high pace and very much one to watch out for.
